From October 24 to December 15, the Gilyarovsky Center, a branch of the Museum of Moscow, will turn into a boring school, where curiosity and the desire to learn new things are encouraged. Using the example of research in Moscow, the Moscow’s cool exhibition will show how to make all the subjects of the school program interesting both for the humanities and the techies, so that the knowledge needed in real life comes to the place of meaningless bison. The exhibition will also introduce the works of leading modern illustrators of children’s books.
While you are in school, you often do not understand at all if this knowledge will be useful. At the Moscow’s cool exhibition, children and parents will be convinced that much more can be learned about the world around us, if we act multidisciplinary, that is, we use the approaches of various sciences. Such an object studied from all sides will be the city of Moscow.
Chemistry, literature, physics, Russian language, history, geography, mathematics, biology, social studies, fine arts, MHK, music, physical education: 13 items from the school curriculum provide 13 ways to learn something new about Moscow and everything that surrounds us. What kind of people live in Moscow today will tell social science. What smells good in the city before a thunderstorm or unpleasant from the arch at home - chemistry. How far has a friend gone, if he now lives in the north-east of Moscow, is geography. What distinguished Muscovites from us in ancient times is history. For each item selected unique things that you can touch and learn.
Here you can also see the drawings of leading contemporary illustrators - Ani Desnitskaya, Natalia Kondratova, Evdokia Gasumyan, Nina Kuzmina, Olga Zolotukhina, Olga Posukh, Alexander Yakovlev, Natasha Yaskina and others - and see how different Moscow appears on the pages of children’s books. Their works will overlap with the drawings of Moscow by the famous Soviet graphic artist Anatoly Kokorin. Also at the exhibition it will be possible to learn how books are created.
From October 27, the exhibition will begin interactive lessons on selected subjects. They will be conducted by the curator of the VAC children’s programs, Katya Porutchik, the author of the Russian language learning method Olga Soboleva, the historian Tatyana Voznyuk, the author of books and editor Alexander Litvin, the art historian Tatyana Tikhonova, artists Anya Desnitskaya, Evgeny Tikhonov, Masha Molokova and many others. A full schedule of lessons will be posted on the website of the Museum of Moscow.
Opening of the exhibition: October 23 at 18.00. The opening program will include a curator tour, an autograph session of illustrators, a musical concert. Entrance to the opening is free for children and parents.
